Avery's Cake Smash ~ Calgary Photographer~

Avery's minimalist inspired cake smash turned out absolutely stunning. From the tiny details of her tiny toes, scattered roses, her adorable silver spoon to her larger than life grins (and white balloons!) I couldnt love a set up like this more. It also helped that this baby LOVED her cake. In fact she may even hold the record for most cake consumed making her way all the way to the second tier! ;) I could not get enough of this girl and the proof is in the pictures! 

I have been photographing Avery since she was born. She was a calm serene newborn and now a happy, adorable little toddler. The changes I get to witness and watching little budding personalities is one of the many reasons I just love my job. 

Zavian's Cake Smash ~ Calgary Photographer ~

Zavian's mom requested a COOKIE MONSTER theme for this sweet boys cake smash. I have been wanting to do a cookie monster theme for SO long. I had so many ideas I wanted to incorporate. And besides who doesnt love cookie monster???

As you can tell Zavian was completley into the photo session! He had all kinds of charming smiles for me and he was a pretty awesome smasher too! As you can see the was not much of the cookie monster cake by the time he was done ;)

Daniel's Newborn Photo session - Calgary Newborn Photographer

This sweet boy was a response to a model call I had placed out last month (currently closed) Daniel was a perfect choice of a model as he made me WORK for it! haha! Those precious little peepers of his barely shut! Which is such a rare occurrence for my warm studio space and cozy wraps! Regardless he was an excellent sport, so calm and sweet! I even managed to sneak in some video time of behind the scenes. Which is coming soon! For now I hope you enjoy this baby boy and the art I created of his precious time being this tiny.

Astella's Cake Smash ~ Calgary Baby Photographer

Twinkle twinkle little star, one year old is what you are <3 This cake smash photography session theme was chose due to the fact Astella's name means star. This is also the song that I (yes I am the lucky mama here) have sung to her since day one.

You never realize how fast a year goes by until you have children. From the teeny tiny newborn we brought home to the toddler walking and tumbling everywhere. I feel like ive barely had time to blink. This sweet girl walks, talks, climbs, claps, dances, laughs (shes our little comedian) and stomps her feet to the beat. She loves rubber ducky's, elmo, music, cupboards, vents (more than once Ive moved my chair back while editing to have a leg go through a vent hole missing the cover). She may be tiny but she loves food ;) BUT her most favorite thing in the whole entire world is her big sisters. She is so loved and we are so blessed. 

I know just how important it is to document these days. Freeze them in time for you to enjoy years from now. I know personally I will LOVE looking back on these images and seeing the little bits of her budding personality. For babies dont keep but photographs do. 

If you have a sweet babe turning one this year I would love to photograph their cake smash and/or one year portraits. For a list of pricing please visit here.

Audrey's Newborn Photography Session ~ Calgary Newborn Photographer ~

AC Photography is an experienced newborn photographer located in the NW area of Calgary Alberta. For more information on packages please visit here. Digital packages begin at just $225!

Little Miss Audrey was an absolute GEM to work with. As you can tell by the many beautiful images it was extremely hard to narrow this little gals gallery down. The fact that her big bro looks like a tiny pint size model did not help make my job any easier ;) Heck how photogenic is this ENTIRE family! 

For Audrey sessions mom requested girly. The more girly the better. So of course pink and purple made it on the agenda, along with florals and lace. 

I also got the first opportunity to use my new succulent backdrop here in which I handmade the little floral crown specifically for.

I hope you enjoy and goo and gahh over these images as much as me!

 

Vendors I used here are Mia Joy Studio (the adorable lace wrap) and Fancy Shmancy by Monica Dragon. 

Ruby's Newborn Photography Session ~ Calgary Alberta Newborn Photographer~

Ruby is the first in her family to be born here in Canada. Mom, Dad and her big brother Max were all born in Ireland! Seriously one of the best things about my job (besides baby's of course!) is meeting all kinds of new people. 

For Ruby's photos we of course had to include ruby red! Im loving all these dark and rich colors mom chose. It is not something that is requested a whole lot so when she asked I was all for it! This beautiful little dolly photographed so perfectly with her dark hair and sweet cheeks, I could have kept her!! Also  how adorable is big bro Max with those gorgeous dimples! Altogether a perfect pair!

AC Photography is located in NW Calgary. For more information on booking a newborn package with me please visit here.

Adalyn's Cake Smash Session! Calgary, Alberta Photographer

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeekkkkk <----- The real sound I made when I got to see Miss Adalyn again! These most absolute PRECIOUS rolls she gained since I photographed her newborn photos will literally make your heart stop! This sweet dolly was not only over the top adorable but one of the happiest babys ive ever met. So full of smiles, and she had SO much fun smashing her cake! I really think I could take her photos all day every day.  Big sister also joined in on the cake smash fun, because who doesn't want cake! I hope these photos make you smile as much as they make me do every time I view them.

 

Also did I mention I hand made each of these flowers!! Mom came to me with an idea and I brought it to life.

Hattie Family Newborn Session ~ Calgary Newborn Photographer ~

I could not have asked for a better little model in Miss. Hattie. This adorable doll was so passive and sleepy we just tranistioned into pose after pose after pose! Her squishy little cheeks made it seriously hard to stop! ;) I first met this family when photographing her big brother Tanners newborn photos and have photographed them a couple time since. Wtaching little ones grow up behind my lens is one of THE best perks of my job hands down. 

During a 2 hour newborn session, you get time to talk and know one another! I found out Hattie was named after her great Aunt Hattie, which from the stories Mom & Dad told me was quite the Lady! Full of pizaz and life itself! We figured if Hattie lived up to her name sake Mom and Dad would have their hands full! The minx shawl in the images belonged to great Aunt Hattie herself! Adding a whole new level of nogaslia to these images.

Chaba Family Session ~ Calgary Photographer ~

The Chaba family! This was my second time working with this family and their sweet boy Kehlan. I photographed Kehlan at 3 months old and yes his hair was as epic as it is now! Even though this was a family session I was sure to get a photo of mom and dad. To me its a must have shot at every family session. Too many times I have heard "We havent had our photos taken since our wedding!" I get it, those adorable little humans we have created are priority #1 as parents its our job to preserve their childhood in the form of photographs however, it is so important to document your life together as well! 

This family session was shot at a brand new location for me, Silver Springs Botanical Gardens in the NW of Calgary ! Mom brought it to my attention and I was so glad she did, it was a very quaint beautiful little area of the city.

Astella - Sitter Session ~ Calgary Photographer ~

This is the face of a little rascal to say the least! Astella is proving to be quite the little spitfire. Sitting at 5 months unsupported and, crawling days before turning 6 months old. She is now 6 months old and one busy teeny tiny 13lb little gal ;) You wouldn't know it here but she was one tough cookie to photograph. It was a constant game of crawling off the set and putting her back on it haha! I had to work extra hard to get these smiles as she has caught onto my tricks by now and avoids the camera like the plaque. But she takes it all in stride, is always happy and is she EVER worth all the trouble! The first set of images were taken at 6 months the second half (where you can see her with her two big sisters) was taken at 5 months. You can even see a side by side of her newborn photo and now. She is wearing the same floral headpiece and as always its amazing to see the changes! Mama's dont blink, they truly grow too fast!!!

Above you can see Astella as a newborn and her now in the same headband.

Elliott's Newborn Session- Calgary Newborn Photographer

Elliott is already shaping up to be one awesome human. From Harry Potter to Star Wars this little fan will blow you away with all his adorableness. He demonstrates he has what it takes to be a Jedi and can totally hold his own wand ;) You have got to check these images out. 

Elliott came into the studio with his mom, dad and big brother. They were all just picture perfect! His big bro was super helpful, Elliott is one lucky little guy. Mom is a blogger of an awesome blog called "See The World in PINK"  <- which is jammed pack with all kinds of great content on makeup, skincare etc etc (I will link her info below.)

I was blown away by how content Elliott was during his photo session (THESE ARE NOT EVEN CLOSE TO ALL HIS IMAGES), Elliott is the prime example of why I do not turn newborns away past those first couple of weeks. Although I do recommend photos be done within the first 15 days of birth I am open to little babes of all ages. I will never turn a baby away due to their age. Mr. Elliott came into the studio at about 6 weeks of age, and as you can tell he did AMAZING! Every bit as well as any 10 day old baby I had.

Ivy - Calgary Newborn Photographer

This teeny tiny real life doll was born at just under 6lbs, but that didnt stop her from rocking her session!!! 

Ivy came into the studio with mom, dad and big sister Olive. She slept like a dream the entire time while I worked away posing her in and out of different poses. When I seen Ivy I knew this particular flower headband (first picture below) would go beautifully with her gorgoeous skin tone. She must have agreed because look how absolutely adorbale she looks while wearing it!

Big sister Olive wasnt a fan of getting any pictures done however with a little bit of coaxing, some peek-a-boo and a game of 21 questions we managed to get some pretty adorable shots! 

This gallery is so jammed packed with some gorgeous images that I hope you will enjoy!

Cake smash GALORE !!!!! ~Calgary, Alberta Photographer~

Cake smashes have almost become a sort of "right of passage" for little babies reaching their 1st year milestone! These wildly popular sessions are SO much fun and the results will guarantee smiles and laughs for years to come.  Admittedly these sessions are a lot of work! I customize each cake smash session for your baby. I hand design all my sets and make all the props. From extravagant scenes/setups to a simple color scheme. Whatever you think up I bring it to life. I also only take a few of these sessions a month due to the time consuming nature so.... book fast! ;)

Cake smash images are some of my favorite. Nothing brings out baby faces, expressions, and smiles quite like a delicious cake! Below is a collaboration of some of my recent cake smash sessions.  

Lochlan had a Dr. Sesus themed session. I hand painted those red strips . This little guys nickname is Chocolate! Which was SO fitting because he enjoyed the chocolate much more than the cake ;) I LOVED this little guy. Take a look at his last image. Babies may not be able to talk but that doesn't stop them from communicating. You can clearly see he is telling us he is DONE :D

Rayne, this little sweetie is all about the purple! Mom picked the most perfect colors and outfit for this session. I absolutely loved the purple/teal/pink color combo. I photographed Rayne's newborn session (and used purple!) 

Georgia & Charlee - I have photographed these two little beauties a few times now including their newborn session. I love watching these two sweeties grow. I was pretty pumped to have these two in the studio for their cake smash. This set was so fun. The bright colors just popped so perfectly with their little tutus!

Xavier, seriously this little dude and those curls. Can it get any sweeter???? Xavier is another little one who I also photographed his newborn photos! His cake smash theme was a blue ombre. Mom informed me his birthday party was "Twinkle twinkle little star" so I of course had to bring out my moon prop. His overalls and little diaper cover was just so adorable and made by "Sew Bright Creations" Also Xaviers mom made his cake as well as makes them for others. I will link to both their instagrams below.


Harper, this gal is part of my watch me grow program. And I have done just that! This little miss has came to me for her newborn, 6 months, 9 months and most recently her cake smash. I even photographed her pregnancy announcement! Mom had this beautiful dress custom made just for this little princess so we designed the set to match! We were going for a "princess" theme. You have GOT to check out her converse and how mom glammed them up!

When you bring your baby in for this session its important to remember to just sit back and wait for the magic to happen. This is usually all new territory for them and can sometimes take them a little bit to wrap their mind around the fact there is a whole cake in front of them, just for them! Below are a few tips to help ensure a smooth and successful cake smash session

TIP #1 : Take your cake out the fridge at least 2 hours prior to your session. Cold cakes can be firm cakes making it much harder for baby to dig into.

TIP #2: Bring something to wash it down. All that sticky sugary frosting well think peanut butter. I have found little ones who start to get fussy have a drink of water and then be able to jump right back in.

TIP #3: Mom and/or Dad bring a change of clothes. I know the cake is for baby and you are not expecting to be involved but most times it looks like you were right there digging in too ;)

TIP #4: A wet face cloth in a ziplock baggie can really do so much more than baby wipes!

Other than that just sit back and enjoy! You clean your baby and Ill clean the mess. 

AC Photography is a full service photography studio located in Calgary. I offer digital photography packages suitable for any budget. I have many years experience as a photographer, with babies and little children. I would love to capture some beautiful artist     memories for your family.

Solomon - Newborn Photo Session ~ Calgary, AB

Solomon 10 days new. As you can see this little guy was pure perfection!!! From his chunky cheeks to those pouty plump little lips this guy was a dream to photograph! He was so good to me, reminding me how lucky I am that THIS is my job ;) Solomon is the youngest of four equally adorable boys. I always enjoy my time with this family! I have photographed this family as a family of 5, their wedding day, maternity photos and now as they celebrate the 6th addition to their family. I feel so blessed to watch a family grow and help preserve some of their most precious memories. It also helps that you couldnt ask for a more well behaved bunch of little boys! 

Avery- Newborn Photo Session

Avery was such a sweet doll. So peaceful and perfect in everyway! Her little features were so delicate, and mom and dad were pretty adorable too! :D Mom requested a very simple, natural organic look for Avery's session. And just like the saying goes "Mom knows best", because it was the perfect look for little miss Avery.
